Facebook needed a Chief Marketing Officer (CMO) for its billion dollar enterprise. Gary Briggs, the ex-Motorola Marketing Chief turned out to be the right man for the job and so he was offered the opportunity to join Facebook. Briggs has taken the place of Eric Antonow. When Google took over Motorola for $12.5 billion a year ago, Briggs was appointed the CMO. Gary Briggs is very excited about being part of Facebook’s team. He is looking forward to working dedicatedly for the social network. According to Briggs, it is not simply an organization but a way of life for so many people who stay connected to friends and the things they care about via the Great Link Maker.

Before his previous job at Motorola, Briggs was into Consumer Marketing at eBay and Pepsico. It is the first time Facebook has appointed a CMO. Motorola meanwhile had recently revamped its insignia and introduced the world to its handset. A series of uncensored ads had landed it in the tabloids too. The person who left a spot vacant for Briggs at Facebook had been in the position since the past three years. Gary Briggs is definitely a very valuable person to enter the ranks of Facebook. In his own words he can hardly wait to get started at the new job that awaits him at the greatest social set up in this global village of ours.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
